Abstract
This study was conducted to determine the effect on the growth efficiency, hematological profile, and sensory characteristics of pekin ducklings of various levels of trichanthera gigantea leaf meal (TGLM) Ducklings were distributed in 4 tests, with 10 ducks per sample repeated thrice. Treatments were 0 percent TGLM (control) T1: T2-5 percent TGLM: T3-10 percent TGLM and T4-15 percent TGLM. Data were analyzed using Variance Analysis ( ANOVA).
ANOVA showed significant results (P<0.05) for the final body weight while significantly significant results (P<0.001) were obtained for the weight gain and feed intake of pekin ducks in Treatment 4. On the liver , pancreas, drumsticks, thighs and neck weight a not significant result was noted, but a extremely significant result (P<0.001) was noted on the wings and back weight. A significant result (P<0.05) was obtained on treatment filet yield 4. In all treatments that dropped below normal values, a not important result was noted on the red blood cell count and the ducks' cell volume packed. T4 reported a highly significant (P<0.001) result on the aroma and taste with an adjective rating of "Like Extremely," while modest (P<0.05) results on juiciness and tenderness with adjective rating of "Like very much" were observed. The pekin ducks fed with Treatment 4 realized the highest return on investment based on the economic study.

Key words: Trichanthera Gigantea, Hematological Profile, Sensory Characteristics, Body Weight, Feed Conversion Ratio, Feed Conversion
